    Details

    The scene is set from the moment you step into our authentic Edwardian waiting room. You will be guided by staff in full period uniform.Our river tours last about 45 minutes, whilst you pass several medieval buildings the punter tells you the exciting stories about Canterbury's history.

    You may wish to have one of our alternative tours: take an Edwardian style punt on a candle lit ghost hunting trip through the historic centre of Canterbury. Discover the frightening secrets that are hidden in the darkness beneath Canterbury's streets.

    On the haunted river tour, your traditionally dressed chauffeur will point out the places where ghosts have been sighted. You will be told a series of short ghost stories which, when possible, seek to explain these supernatural manifestations. Sit comfortably on our spacious, ashwood seats and wrap up warm in our cosy tartan blankets.

    Take a romantic river tour with your loved one. The River Stour provides a beautiful seeing for an unusual romantic birthday or anniversary gift. Listen to our chauffeur's commentary of the picturesque scenery, or whisper sweet nothings to each toher as the sights go by. The cost is £40.00.
